Paul Millsap double-doubled with 13 points and 10 rebounds, but hit just 4-of-13 shots and didn't make a 3-pointer in Wednesday's opening loss to the Pacers.
He did have five dimes and a steal, but didn't block a shot tonight. We're not worried about Millsap, but with Al Horford healthy and productive, he's going to have to work harder for his production this season. Oct 29 - 11:51 PM

Paul Millsap hit 3-of-6 shots and 9-of-10 free throws for 15 points, eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in Wednesday's win over the Spurs.

Millsap's assists and 3-pointers put him above most other power forwards in the league and he's primed for a monster season. He didn't have a 3-pointer or a block tonight, but they're coming. Millsap will be the second-round pick for a ton of owners this season, and they should feel rock-solid about taking him there.

Paul Millsap made 1-of-11 from the field and 3-of-10 from the line for five points, seven boards, six assists, two steals and one turnover against the Pistons on Saturday.

He did fill up the stat sheet, but this is a shooting line that may have made Brandon Jennings feel better about himself. This dud was good for a true shooting percentage of 16.2, but who cares? Millsap is a fantasy stud and is definitely capable of being a top-25 player.

Paul Millsap did not play on Thursday against the Bulls.

No injury was reported and he likely just got the night off after a stellar 23-point Tuesday. Millsap's usage was a little lower while Al Horford was active last season, but he was more efficient. Fantasy owners should target him around the turn of the second and third rounds.
Oct 17 - 9:41 AM

Paul Millsap hit 9-of-14 shots for 23 points, five rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block on Tuesday, but didn't hit any 3-pointers.

The 3-point shot has become an extra weapon for Millsap over the year of so. After hitting a total of 31 over his first seven seasons, he doubled that number with 76 3-pointers last season, according to Tommy Beer. And that has also given him much more fantasy value.
Oct 15 - 12:11 AM

Paul Millsap hit just 3-of-9 shot for six points and two rebounds in 14 minutes on Saturday.

Nothing to see here, folks. He's going to have another big season as the starting power forward in Atlanta, and tonight's game was a good example of what happens in the preseason.

Paul Millsap signed just a two-year deal with the Hawks, meaning he appears to be heading for free agency after this season.

"We want to keep him," coach Mike Budenholzer said. "He is someone who is really important to us. He fits us very well. We’ve communicated that with him on a regular basis." With free agency pending, Millsap should be in for a big season, although it will be interesting to see him and Al Horford on the court together this year.

Paul Millsap was one of three players cut from Team USA's roster this week, along with John Wall and Bradley Beal.

Millsap was a late addition to the team, which had a few key frontcourt players decline to participate, but he was never expected to make the final 12-man roster. Anthony Davis and Kenneth Faried are still holding down the PF spot, though Faried may not make the final cut -- Coach K isn't shy about using small lineups vs. international competition.

Paul Millsap has been invited to join Team USA during their six-day training camp in Las Vegas this week.

The team recently lost frontcourt players LaMarcus Aldridge, Kevin Love and Blake Griffin, prompting Team USA director to bring Millsap into the fold. With 19 players competing for 12 roster spots in this summer's FIBA World Cup, Millsap still faces a steep road to making the team.

Paul Millsap's offensive game was in shambles during Saturday's Game 7 loss to the Pacers, making 6-of-21 from the field for 15 points with 17 boards, four assists, four steals and one block in 44 minutes.

He shot 0-of-9 in the first half, which marked the most attempts without a make in any half of his career. Millsap grabbed 10 offensive boards and just couldn't get his put backs to go down while also missing all five shots from deep. The Hawks attempted 92 shots as a team and made just 30.4 percent of them and this game shouldn't have even been as close as it was. Millsap played great this year and finished with second-round value in standard fantasy leagues during the regular season, which is where he'll likely be targeted in drafts next season.
May 3 - 8:23 PM

Paul Millsap handed out a playoff career-high five assists to go with 16 points, 18 boards, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in Thursday's loss to the Pacers.

His shot selection wasn't there tonight and he made just 4-of-13 from the field. Millsap wasn't at his best down the stretch and he attempted a handful of shots out of rhythm. He put up another big stat line tonight and averaged 20.2 points, 9.8 boards, 2.7 assists, 2.0 blocks, 1.0 steals and 1.5 triples in the six games during this series.
May 1 - 10:04 PM

Paul Millsap scored a playoff-high 29 points on 10-of-18 shooting with three 3-pointers on Saturday, but it wasn't enough to overcome the visiting Pacers in Game 4.

Millsap also hit 6-of-6 free throws with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks in the loss, but the rest of Atlanta's starters combined for paltry 11-of-36 shooting (30.6 percent). For Millsap, this game was the continuation of his brilliant regular season, during which he poured in a career-high 17.9 points en route to top-20 value in nine-cat leagues.
Apr 26 - 5:00 PM

Paul Millsap called Game 3 a must-win game for the Hawks.

Millsap could have gone on to call Games 4 and 5 must-win games as well, but it's obvious that the Hawks are going to go down swinging against the Pacers. For his part, Millsap scored 19 points to go along with four rebounds, a steal, and a block in Tuesday's Game 2 loss and may need to step up his game if he's going to carry his team to a Round 1 upset over the top-seeded Pacers.
Apr 24 - 12:31 PM

Paul Millsap hit 6-of-12 shots and two 3-pointers for 19 points, four rebounds, a steal and a block in 31 minutes of Tuesday's Game 2 loss to the Pacers.

Millsap didn't play poorly, but the Hawks, who held a four-point lead entering the third quarter, couldn't buy a bucket and watched as the Pacers went on a 17-0 run to put the game away. Look for Millsap and the Hawks to bounce back when the series moves to Atlanta on Thursday for Game 3.
Apr 22 - 9:46 PM

Paul Millsap rested on Wednesday, but all indications are that he's ready to go for the playoffs.

He's dealing with a sore thumb, but it will take a lot more than that to keep him out of the postseason. If you're in a playoff league, draft him as you normally would.
